Hi Pete… you made my way! As we are being “locking down” everywhere, more or less, to see such a lovely and, as you rightly said, delicate small creature is a gift. It must be rewarding for you. I know there are so many predators around and it will be difficult for the lamb but so far it is alive and kicking. Big thank!

Congratulations, there’s nothing like new life! I’ve been fortunate enough to witness a few animal births whilst visiting Southern Africa and it’s always heartwarming. Looking forward to seeing many more……

Hello Pete Thorpe, I’m a fan of Mapogos and I would like to know something about them !! How did “Kinky Tail and Mister T” manage to attack and kill a Manjingilane alone, since lions are always together?!?! The Majingilanes attacked “Kinky Tail and Mister T” !! Were in lesser numbers, because “Mister T and Kinky Tail” didn’t run away (The Majingilanes must have given notice that they were in the majority) !!! ??? Why didn’t they join the other brothers ??? Thank you =)

This tiny lamb is so sweet. And, yes, the piglets are really cute.

Fantastic. Summer is here. Did you hear the Woodlands or is it too early.

Adorable, and that might be the cutest sound I’ve ever heard!

Such a beautiful sighting, new life is always inspiring. Fingers crossed for this little one and for all of the other lambs being born in the coming weeks. As always Londolozi, thank you so much.
